The five most important kinds of Bhakti:
sadhu-sanga, nama-kirtana, bhagavata-sravana
mathura-vasa, sri-murtira sraddhaya sevana.
“One should associate with devotees,
chant the holy name of the Lord,
reside at Mathura and
worship the Deity with faith and veneration.”
Sri Caitanya-caritamrta Madhya-lila, 22.128
